SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A body found dumped on off a highway in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, has been confirmed as that of a missing Texas priest.
The Diocese of Austin and a family member confirmed Monday that the Rev. Jesse Euresti was found dead in the border city where he had hoped to retire.
The 69-year-old purchased a home in Nuevo Laredo and planned to retire there in July. Euresti had gone last week to work on the home, but police were called when a neighbor discovered a trail of blood from the garage to the bedroom.
